    Connecting Children’s Accounts


    I created accounts for my kids and need to connect them to my family group. Since they’re minors, this requires my consent, which I’m asked to give by “signing” a form. To sign, I’m supposed to type my name which doesn’t make much sense. When I do so, I’m prompted that my name doesn’t match match what?, and I can’t proceed. Any suggestions?

    :)

    adding user accounts for children

    The customer:

    "It is overbearing for Microsoft to require children to either have an e-mail or phone number"

    The (unhelpful technician):

    "I suggest you to follow the steps how to create the child account as below and check if it helps.

    • Press Windows key and select settings.
    • Click on Account and select Family and other users.
    • Then click add someone else to this pc and select add child’s account
    • Enter the child’s email address and click on Next."

    This is becoming such a trend. Please read the details that someone has gone to the trouble of providing so that you can respond HELPFULLY.
